ModStuff is now in its 6th year and, this year, LNP Promotions bring you another afternoon of top entertainment – and its FREE ENTRY.

This year, the team are working in partnership with Paisley Vespa  Club to raise funds for Renfrewshire Carers Centre during the afternoon event. We’ll be asking you to dig deep. There will be a raffle and plenty of opportunity to make a donation.

On show will be an array of great live music, as well as this year’s Scooter Rideout and competition which is fast becoming an eagerly anticipated fixture in the Paisley events calendar. Scooters from far and wide will be made very welcome and led around town by Paisley Vespa Club.

Competition awards this year are sponsored by Burger & Keg with prizes awarded for:

  • Best Vespa
  • Best Lambretta
  • Best Automatic / Modern
  • Best Custom
  • Best Vintage
  • Furthest Travelled
  • Best Dressed
  • Special Recognition Award (Andy Irvine Memorial)

Paisley’s own Gerry McGuire will be DJ for ModStuff, playing the best in Mod, Northern Soul and R&B in the Spiegeltent, and this is your line-up of bands in the afternoon…

Lemon Soul
Lemon Soul rose from the ashes of punk (then 80’s indie) covers band The Lemons. Three new vocalists were recruited: Charlie McFadden, Stephanie Green and Julie Castro Standen (all from Paisley) and a new direction taken. To the surviving rhythm section of John Wilkie, bass and Tom Docherty, drums were added Ally Wilson, guitar, Jim McCann, sax and Grant Urquart, keys. Lemon Soul have been together for over two years building up their set and their gigging profile across the west of Scotland.

START! were formed in January 2016, brought together by a love of all things relating to Mod.

They play a fantastic set of tunes from The Small Faces, The Kinks, 60’s soul and tunes from the Mod revival of the late 70s. Start! have been building their reputation with plenty of gigs around Glasgow, Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. Most of the band come from the Paisley area and are delighted to be playing Modstuff in their home town. Follow them on Facebook.

The Dexy’s Tribute Band
The world’s only Dexy’s Midnight Runners Tribute band. This is not a couple of guys with midi files, this is a full blown, 8-piece HUGE sound, faithfully re-creating the halcyon days of all incarnations of Kevin Rowlands imagination including a 3 piece horn section, banjo, accordion, organ, piano, guitar, bass, fiddle, and drums. Once seen never forgotten, and a fistful of songs that will take you back to the days when you were Searching For the Young Soul Rebels!!! Now for the caper. Follow them on Facebook.

Burger & KEG is the official sponsor of ModStuff. The B&K team are expanding ModStuff into the bar with three brilliant DJ nights from 19-21 October.

NNE are bringing the Friday warm-up and Sunday chill-out sessions with Afterglow, playing the best soul, ska, Northern Soul, jazz and revival music.

On Saturday night, get yourself to Burger & KEG after the ModStuff show for the Simply Vinyl after show party!
